Maker Profile: Angela Clay, Liberate and Lather

I heard Angela on a podcast during the summer of 2020, while enjoying quiet quarantine in my backyard. I was moved by her dedication and passion of self-care products, and her attention to customers during such a difficult time in our history.

I am Angie Clay, the creative hands and heart behind a self-care business called Liberate and Lather. Originally from Virginia but have been living out in Washington State long enough to call it my second home. I am a notebook and paper junkie, bargain shopping enthusiast, a natural hair lover, and wandering nomad. I spend most of my days making the most out of fat, by turning it into creamy, body-loving, smell goods, AKA soap that fuse perfectly with a hot shower. I also melt lovely soy into candles which allow you to escape from the present, and off to another place using your imagination and senses.

I am inspired by my surroundings. I press flowers for my candles, and most of the stones I use in my soap come from the Columbia Basin area and around Washington State.

I am an avid journal writer and have been doing this practice for the last 30 years. Self-care is a huge piece of creating a healthy lifestyle. I have been able to implement this into the Liberate and Lather “Journaling for Self-Care” community where we as women can learn to express ourselves and solve issues by using journaling to explore and let go of things that hold us back from truly living our best lives. What I have done is marry wellness, mental health, and beauty together into one big collective.
